this year we were overjoyed. what's more, i think the bigger objective in working for green energy whether it's government funding or private funded is to lead the way to showing people that green energy is for everybody and we don't need to wait on big energy companies and so forth to give us top down energy that this renewable energy technology gives us the capacity and it's going take initiatives like this po to popular i was this idea. i would like you to put this into effect as quickly as possible. >> thank you. next speakers. christian swin, gabby, jennifer fong. >> thank you, good afternoon. my name is ivy slagel. a san francisco resident since 1996. i represent residents. in my work with premium peace i work with folks across the country who are eagerly waiting for -- people want affordable clean energy and want their jobs and recovered. two stories i want to share with you. when voters approved, within 6 months they had a contract of 100 percent savings cost of $133 to $150 a year including natural gas. that was a savings to consumers within 6 months and the bid effectively dumpe
if this book were hotter? what would it do to the table? energy would cascade from the book to the table until they both became the same temperature and they will level off. so that alcohol that's poured on your back has the same temperature as anything else around, but it feels cold. and why does it feel cold, gang? because what is that alcohol doing? what it's doing is what we're gonna be talking about today. it's changing state. it's changing from the liquid state to the gaseous state, okay? and we call that what? begin with ev? evaporation. evaporation, that's right. and we're gonna be learning that evaporation is a cooling process. you know, sometimes you're swimming and you come out and you're all wet, a little breeze come by and you feel kinda chilly. but if no breeze comes by, you don't feel so chilly. and what's going on? when that breeze comes by, what happens to the water on your body? evaporates. it evaporates. when it evaporates, how does your body feel? begin with a c. - cool. - cool. now, we're gonna ask the question hc. why is it that evaporation is a cooling process? and we ca

part we do in terms of purchasing energy. i don't believe that legally there is an authority to decouple the build out from the purchases agreement with shell and in fact i think if that is the approach, i don't believe that there is legal authority for the puc or anyone to do that because the expectation and the intent when the board approved the purchase agreement was there would be a robust build out concurrent with the purchase agreement. i know that sflafco has never approved, the board of supervisors has never approved decoupling of the two. i don't know what decouple means, but as we go forward with the shell contract agreement, we'll be continuing to do a build out as robust a build out as we possibly can. the word decoupling does not, i think, describe what the board of supervisors and what this commission have approved. >> thank you commissioner campos. i would concur. >> commissioner veet or? >> i would also concur. i believe the commissions and i'm not sure the general manager we have decoupling word has been put out there at a couple of our public meetings as we
and an update on our legislation related to clean energy and ms. radica fox will provide the legislative update for you, with respect to the first item, the sfpuc activities, we are progressing as planned, we are on time as our time schedule, we have rated options possible at our commission on march 12th, at that time, we'll be presenting our commission with a customer poll results, we'll be presenting the not to exceed rate for adoption and possible adoption, consideration and possible adoption and that will be accompanied with a report from the rate fairness board providing the commission with advice on those not to exceed rates. at the california puc, we are actively engage on that setting on the proceeding that they are conducting on pg and e's proposed green tariff omtion, they proposed a 100% green power product. that product is proposed to use green e energy certificates, it's anticipated to enroll 30 thousand residential accounts, which is about .68% of eligible customers, and they are proposing this program to serve all of the customers across their service territory. they expect to re
going about this and it's trying to paint a negative picture about the sf clean energy program, but it's conducted by a labor union, we're also getting a lot of e-mails about this as well and i'm curious if the puc has been aware of this effort and what you think needs to be done on your end to kind of counteract the mez saj that is are coming out against clean power sf. >> yes, commissioner, we're definitely aware of the mailers, and e-mail communications, in part because your lafco staff is helpful in making sure that folks at the puc see the information, if it hasn't landed on our doorsteps, we get it from jason which is good. you know, our objective is to inform, provide accurate information to our customers, our potential customers, so that's what our customer notification and education program is focused on. we don't want anyone being surprised by becoming our customers, we want them to understand what the service offering is that we're providing. i expect that in order to do that effectively, we will be answering people's questions that arise from receiving this mailer and then

, no lack of clarity. this is a contract to shell energy to provide electricity. pure and simple. that is our objection. those are jobs. people want the work and we want control of that energy here in san francisco and in california as a whole. not out of state contracts to purchase electricity. the other two items we heard today again, there is no plan for a local build out. commissioner mentioned it, rate board members mentioned that. he said it just right because it's our concern as well, if this plan doesn't work and we are stuck with a contract with shell, that's work that my members do that no one else gets the do. that's our issue. and finally, again, using -- moving money around, creating, using a reserve fund as collateral which is what i heard to permit bondings capacity, it's not such a good idea from utility perspective but that funding amount doesn't occur until the end of the shell contract. that is our fundamental objective. you fore stall all the work all the good that can happen by signing the deal with shell. that's the issue. that's what people are saying, that
about the interest there is in the build out of renewable energy that this program that will lead to and years to come. i think we do have some differences about how quickly that build out can happen. we have a great interest of both public utilities commission and sflafco and that would lead to jobs and cleaner air for years to come. we'll have some discussion today about what our plan currently is and what it can be in the immediate future as well. we'll see the mic to our colleague. director of public utilities commission. any opening marks? >> none. i'm glad to be had been with my colleagues. >> great. that was item no. 3 and we can move on to next item no. 4. >> public comment members of the community -- on matters within the respective jurisdiction and not today's agenda. >> we'll have definitely opportunity to speak on agenda items as they come up today. this is about public comment. anyone would like to talk publically about any item not on the agenda is welcome to do so at this time. okay. seen none come forward we close general public comment and we are going to hear it

because it cut the horses out of the equation. cable cars were a lot more energy efficient. they were very popular in cities all across the united states, including chicago. and they really took over in san francisco because cable cars could climb hills were horses couldn't, opening up development in parts of the city where before there hadn't been any. but cable cars had their drawbacks, too. a cablecar can only go nine miles an hour, as fast as the cable under the street pulling it. cables have a hard time pulling backwards, changing direction, investing in the infrastructure to put the cable in the street is very costly. so you have a lot of upfront costs. if a company wanted to run just one cable car, they had to start up the power house to get the cable car rung through the street. so it energy efficient issues as well. this is an interest street car. that was the new modern, exciting form of transportation. it was very energy efficient. each street car only used enough energy from the wires that it needed. it didn't have to run a power house. people were a little scared of them at fi

that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai

. the state seemed to spend more energy on accelerating their projects at the expense of local projects and so we recommended and oppose at this point in time, until we can see some improvement in what they plan to put in the legislation. and lastly, on the assembly side, ab842 is a measure that we have seen before, and it is on page 7 of the matrix and it would eliminate all further bond funding for the high speed rail program which will have the effect of initially shutting down the initial construction segment as well as the funding for blended service and connectivity projects that we are dependent upon in the bay area and in san francisco. so we recommended opposed to that measure. the previous measures all failed and we think that this one is destined for the same failure but we will have to see and work on it. >> two measures on the senate side that we are recommended support, first is sb 219. and it deals with extending the double fine zones on state routes, 1 and 101 in san francisco, indefinitely. and there has been a long history of first initiating the double fine zones and then co
